FORTY YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH TODAY

THANKFUL TO THIS DAY OF HIS LEADING EXAMPLE

If you go back in time and realize the overall atmosphere and environment around the LGBTQ community in this nation, you will realize the Harvey Milk was a groundbreaking figure.

To this day, his effect is still felt.

More so in the 2018 midterm elections when a significant number of LGBTQ candidates achieved their goal of being elected to the post they were running for.

 Thank you, Mr. Milk!!

Gay rights pioneer Harvey Milk was assassinated on Nov. 27, 1978, just one year after becoming California’s first openly gay elected official

Nov. 27, 2018 / 9:10 AM EST
By Tim Fitzsimons

“It’s not my victory, it’s yours and yours and yours”

Harvey Milk said after winning a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in late 1977.

“If a gay can win, it means there is hope that the system can work for all minorities if we fight. We’ve given them hope.”

A year after delivering that speech and making history as the first openly gay elected official in California – and one of the first in the country – Milk was gunned down at San Francisco City Hall on Nov. 27, 1978.

He was just 48.

But during his short time in office, Milk made his mark. He helped to pass the country’s first gay rights ordinance, which sparked the legal LGBTQ-rights revolution that has since resulted in a nationwide right to same-sex marriage and an increasing number of LGBTQ-rights protections in cities and states across the country.
Milk also undoubtedly inspired future generations of LGBTQ Americans to enter politics.

Earlier this month, 40 years after his death and decades after his history-making election, a record-breaking “rainbow wave” of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans followed in his footsteps by running for office and winning.

Ellen DeGeneres is Celebrating her 60th Birthday …. “🎁 Portia gave Ellen an Outrageously Impressive Birthday Gift 🎁 …. “!!

ELLEN DEGENERES AND PORTIA DE ROSSI

On a very special day, two wonderful people in this world share a special moment. In a way that only true love and understanding can express, Portia showed how important Ellen is for her and how connected they are to each other.

Love is love is love is love …

When it came to getting her wife Ellen DeGeneres a 60th birthday present to remember, Portia de Rossi went absolutely wild

Courtney Thompson

For us mere mortals, a nice bag or dinner at a fancy restaurant would do, but when you’re trying to buy a gift for someone who has everything and then some, gift ideas are a little more tricky.

At least, that’s what you’ve got to assume after Portia de Rossi, 45, gave wife Ellen DeGeneres her very own namesake gorilla conservation centre to celebrate her 60th birthday.

And because an elaborate birthday present doesn’t really count unless millions of people know about it, Portia made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to give Ellen the gift.

Introducing the gift, Portia said she wanted to give her something that “represents who you are and what you really care about. And not just now, but what you’ve always cared about. What you were influenced by and what has made you the amazing person that you are today”.

So she made a donation to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund so large that it will fund the creation of a permanent home, the Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, in Rwanda for the organization that protects endangered mountain gorillas.

Dian Fossey (January 16, 1932 – c. December 26, 1985) was an American primatologist and conservationist known for undertaking an extensive study of mountain gorilla groups from 1966 until her death in 1985.

SAM TSUI AND CASEY BREVES 

Sam Tsui, YouTube singer comes out as gay and marries partner Casey Breves
The couple have starred in several music videos alongside each other

The Youtuber Sam Tsui has come out as gay, a day before he married his partner.

Tsui, who is best known for posting his music videos and covers of popular songs on his channel, revealed the details about his personal life for the first time in a vlog on Friday.

In a vlog, which he labelled an understated “coming out video of a sort”, Tsui announced he is in a long-term relationship with fellow YouTuber and musician Casey Breves.

I have been following these two guys on YouTube. Their music has always fascinated me. Plenty of times I have posted a new video by either one of them or the two together.

I was surfing the net on my smartphone and found a video called ‘This Promise‘ which I hadn’t seen.

Much to my surprise it was their wedding ceremony!

Amazing!

So touching and so heartwarming.

It’s already been one year, so happy belated anniversary!

Congrats, guys!
